L.A.-based trio together PANGEA are certainly one act that aren’t afraid to experiment;  initiating with a strong DIY ethos, the band started writing songs in vocalist and guitarist William Keegan’s bedroom in Santa Clarita, California, while playing countless dynamic house shows. With their critically acclaimed 2014 album Badillac, the band won their fans over effortlessly with bold and capable musical exploration and energy to their sets. The band isn’t afraid to go where no garage-rock band has gone before, this time with a more polished and slick sound on their most recent album, The Phage. With their constant travels and being on the road for so long, Keegan describes this album as “essentially cabin fever, whether it be a cabin or a tour van that you’re trapped in for months. When things become funny for no reason and a little madness sets in.” In the case of The Phage, a little madness can be a good thing; the six-track EP keeps their essential garage-rock rawness yet also ventures onto melodic-pop and dance-able territory. Released on October 16th via Burger Records and fully produced by ex-Replacements member Tommy Stinson, together PANGEA are only just showing us what else they have in store for us in the future.
